  • Every now and then, when you’re onstage, you hear the best sound a player can hear. It’s a sound you can’t get in movies or in television. It is the sound of a wonderful, deep silence that means you’ve hit them where they live.
  • After three times, I realize marriage is not for me. Not for me. I love to get married, you know, but I don’t like to be married. You go away on a honeymoon, you have a great time, you come home, they want to come in the house!
  • [In a 1980 interview] Jean Arthur was ALWAYS my favorite actress when I was a kid. And I love Bette Davis for a very peculiar reason. Bette Davis is not afraid to stink! There are these careful actresses who look pretty, and they’re never bad, they’re never great. But Bette Davis goes; she’ll take chances. I love to watch her on the set. Sometimes it’s awful, but sometimes it’s FANTASTIC!
  • [on Norman Mailer] Norman’s not capable of sleeping with a starlet and using her and then just saying “That was great, kid. Goodbye.” Unlike most men in Hollywood, he’s actually a feminist. He sees women as people, not just sex objects. He reveres women. He feels there’s kind of respect they must have.
  • [on her role in A Patch of Blue (1965)] Can you imagine me using words like “nigger” and “wop”? I’ve always found something to like in the characters I’ve played, but not this time. I really hate this woman. She blinds her daughter by accident when she was trying to blind her husband. And when the girl grows up, she beats her. How’s that for a role?
  • [on Marlon Brando in the stage production of A Streetcar Named Desire (1951)] There was an electrical charge and almost an animal scent he projected over the footlights that made it impossible for the audience to think or watch the other performers on the stage. All you could do was feel, the sexual arousal was so complete. I don’t believe that quality can be learned; it’s just there, primitive and compelling. The only time I experienced a similar reaction was when I saw Elvis Presley perform in Las Vegas.
  • (on Robert Taylor who was her co-star in A House Is Not a Home (1964)) He was the sweetest man to work with. By that I mean he was cooperative and understanding in contrast to most leading men today, who try to either elbow you out of camera range or are off in a corner somewhere practicing ‘Method acting’.
  • [on Oscar Levant] A tortured man who sprayed his loathing on anyone within range.
  • [on Robert De Niro] Bobby needs someone to watch over him. He doesn’t even know enough to wear a coat in the wintertime. When we did Bloody Mama (1970) he didn’t even know how much money they were paying him. I found out how little it was and insisted they at least give him some expense money.
  • [on Anthony Franciosa] I’ll never forget the night I brought my Oscar home and Tony took one look at it and I knew my marriage was over.
  • [on director George Stevens] George photographs what goes on in the air between people.
  • [on Joanne Woodward] Joanne always made it her business to hold back her career while Paul Newman was on the up and up. And that girl is one helluva talented actress. But she knew what side her bread was buttered on and let Paul become the superstar of the family. The result? They’re still happily married today.
  • I think on-stage nudity is disgusting, shameful and damaging to all things American. But if I were 22 with a great body, it would be artistic, tasteful, patriotic and a progressive religious experience.
  • It’s sad that people are so open about their sexuality. Sex is much more fun when you have to sneak around and cover it up.
  • My face was always so made up, it looked as though it had the decorators in.
  • Anna Magnani could act anybody off the stage or screen.
  • [on Fredric March] He was able to do a very emotional scene with tears in his eyes, and pinch my fanny at the same time.
  • (her career-longevity advice) You gotta play mothers. If you don’t, you won’t get a long career in Hollywood.
  • I have bursts of being a lady, but it doesn’t last long.
  • I had to gain forty pounds for this movie.
  • The best way to find out about a man is to have lunch with his ex-wife
  • I did a picture in England one winter and it was so cold I almost got married.
  • In Hollywood, all the marriages are happy. It’s trying to live together afterwards that causes all the problems.


  • For the majority of her life she had only one ovary, having undergone an oophorectomy at 8-years-old.
  • Along with Dianne Wiest, she is one of only two actresses to have won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress on two occasions: Winters won for The Diary of Anne Frank (1959) and A Patch of Blue (1965) and Wiest won for Hannah and Her Sisters (1986) and Bullets Over Broadway (1994).
  • She died only five days before her third husband Anthony Franciosa.
  • Turned down the role of prostitute Alma Burke in From Here to Eternity (1953) as she had just given birth to her daughter Vittoria Gassman. Donna Reed, who won the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her performance, was cast instead.

  • She was awarded a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 1752 Vine Street in Hollywood, California on February 8, 1960.

  • Was the 50th actress to receive an Academy Award; she won the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for The Diary of Anne Frank (1959) at The 32nd Annual Academy Awards (1960) on April 4, 1960.
  • Underwent two abortions as a teenager, the first occurring when she was just age 15.
  • She considered Ralph Richardson the greatest actor with Laurence Olivier and Marlon Brando both second to him.
  • Winters got her first screen test after Columbia studio boss Harry Cohn saw her on Broadway in Max Reinhardt’s “Rosalind” in 1942. He met her on a Saturday night backstage and asked that she audition the following day during a blizzard. Although she was only 16, she told Cohn she was 21, and he personally directed her test. Cohn left immediately afterward for Hollywood, and three weeks later she received two train tickets with an order to report to Columbia Studios for a role in Cover Girl (1944). Cohn personally called Washington to free up Winters’ husband, who was finishing basic training in Louisiana. Unfortunately, she arrived too late for Cover Girl (1944).
  • Winters considered A Place in the Sun (1951) her best work.
  • She was a lifelong progressive Democrat who was active in the campaigns of Adlai Stevenson, John F. Kennedy, Robert F. Kennedy, Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton; as well as attended everyone of the Democratic National Conventions until her death.
  • Was originally considered for the female lead in Forbidden (1953), which went to Joanne Dru.

The others in chronological order are Helen Hayes (The Sin of Madelon Claudet (1931)), Donna Reed (From Here to Eternity (1953)), Susan Hayward (I Want to Live! (1958)), Elizabeth Taylor (BUtterfield 8 (1960)), Shirley Jones (Elmer Gantry (1960)), Jane Fonda (Klute (1971)), Mira Sorvino (Mighty Aphrodite (1995)), Kim Basinger (L.A. Confidential (1997)) and Charlize Theron (Monster (2003)).
  • In Italy, most of her films were dubbed by either Lidia Simoneschi, Dhia Cristiani or Rosetta Calavetta. She was once dubbed by Wanda Tettoni in Cry of the City (1948) and once by Miranda Bonansea in Behave Yourself! (1951). Gabriella Genta lent her voice to Winters in the role of Belle Rosen in The Poseidon Adventure (1972).
  • When Shelley and Marilyn Monroe were roommates in the late 1940s in Hollywood, Shelley said that one day she had to step out and asked Marilyn to “wash the lettuce” for a salad they were to share for dinner. When she got back to the apartment, Marilyn (aparently new to the art of cooking) had the leaves of lettuce in a small tub of soapy water and was scrubbing them clean.
  • Showed up drunk on her first day of shooting of The Linguini Incident (1991) and was fired by director Richard Shepard.
  • Attended and graduated from Thomas Jefferson High School in New York City.
  • Shirley Schrift took her mother’s maiden name (Winter) as her stage name and added Shelley for her favorite poet. When she saw the call sheet for A Double Life (1947), she discovered that Universal had added an “s”, making her Shelley Winters.
  • She had a role in Always (1985) and filmed a few scenes, but at one point she had a tantrum and left the set. Her agent pleaded with her to go back and resume her role, but she refused and her character was replaced. She does not appear in the final film.
  • Her marriage to Anthony Franciosa broke up when he had an affair with Lauren Bacall. During their affair, Bacall called up Winters and complained, “I’ve been waiting for Tony for an hour. Where the hell is he?”. Shelley said, “You’re complaining to me because my husband is late for a date with you?”. Bacall answered, “If your husband doesn’t respect your marriage, why should I?”.
  • On the September 26, 1975 episode of The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson (1962), she grew tired of Oliver Reed’s attitude towards women. They had a heated conversation and, after Winters told Reed what she thought of his opinions, she left the set. The show continued with Reed going on about women while Johnny Carson looked at him in a daze. Shortly afterward, Winters appeared from stage left, unannounced to Reed and to the shock of Carson. She was carrying a beverage glass and surprised Reed by dumping it over his head. Reed went on to finish his statement as if nothing had happened and later claimed the beverage was whiskey.
  • Suffered a heart attack on October 14, 2005.
  • She was a huge fan of the television series Babylon 5 (1994).
  • In her most important films such as A Place in the Sun (1951), The Night of the Hunter (1955), Lolita (1962), A Double Life (1947), The Diary of Anne Frank (1959) and many others, her character is murdered.

  • Godmother of Laura Dern.
  • Has the distinction of currently being the highest ranked female performer on The Oracle of Bacon’s list of the top 1000 performers based upon their “center of the film universe” average number. Winter’s average link number is 2.696842, placing seventeenth on the list. This places her well above Kevin Bacon, who is currently ranked 1161st, despite being the original focus of the quirky game of linking actors through their co-stars.
